Gluten-free Bakery: #nimatested Mariposa Items

gluten-free bakery

Mariposa, which translates as meaning butterfly in Spanish, was founded on the idea that the treats we loved as children and now even more so as adults could be healthy for all as well as delicious. Though Mariposa is a small gluten-free artisan bakery with brick-and-mortar stores in Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco. We recently discovered that you can order some of their treats via Williams Sonoma, which is a nice option for those who may not live in Oakland or San Francisco.

Upon taking a closer look at the options available and debating for a short while, we decided to try the Mariposa Bakery Gluten-free Chocolate Lover’s Box as well as a few other items that we ordered through Williams Sonoma.

They definitely didn’t fail in being delectable but were they all really gluten-free too? Naturally, we had to find out

Notes: These are light, flaky, and mouthwatering. The ingredients noted the gluten-free flour blend as having organic brown rice flour, tapioca starch, potato starch, organic amaranth flour. Containing organic milk, eggs.The savory chocolate filling is but semisweet chocolate. Definitely, my favorite treat that we tested.
